        Subject: Another map of knowledge

Based on chains of clicks on web pages, another map of relationships between
all domains of human knowledge has been published:

http://www.nature.com/news/2009/090309/full/458135a/box/1.html

For more information ....

Web usage data outline map of knowledge
http://www.nature.com/news/2009/090309/full/458135a.html

The mathematics are trivial .... <g>

Clickstream Data Yields High-Resolution Maps of Science

Very interesting, but I wonder if this can be used for anything other than
tracking how the map changes over time as researchers seek answers to new
questions and problems.
